    Have you heard of “split brain” cases before? In some cases of severe epilepsy, a neurosurgeon will completely sever the corpus callosum, the passage that directly connects the two hemispheres of the brain.

    Afterwards, the two halves of the brain demonstrate independent personalities. The patient might reach for a different shirt with each arm, or would answer a question differently depending on which ear it was whispered into. Eventually, in most cases, the brain adapts and the two hemispheres learn to cooperate again.

    A better punishment in Switzerland—just make an annoying person climb the nearest mountain behind their backyard, all the way to the top (and stay there a little while).

    The bar to be met to be declared an annoying person in Switzerland must be incredibly high. After all, yodeling is considered a normal activity there.

    Yeah? Well the right ear is better at listening to non-pulmonic consonants. So there. I think. Well, maybe.

    Take care, may papal memoir critique Enrique “Their Vows Seem To Keep Them In Line Most Of The Time But When They Get Into The Communion Wine Watch Out” Carusord be with you, and gesundheit.

    In the late ’70s there was an album called “Pope John II Sings at the Festival of Sacrosong.” It bombed so badly that it put the label that released it in the US out of business. Believe It. Or Not.

    Why is the Swiss flag blue and yellow?? The Real Swiss flag is square, not rectangle, with a red background and white cross. (Americans use it as the symbol for medical help… which really bugs all of us Swiss folks ;D… I’m half Swiss) Fun Fact: The Swiss formed the Red Cross and inverted their flag (white background, red cross) for the symbol. Somehow it got reversed in the US.

    I’m assuming because it is connected to the right brain?

    So the idea in Switzerland is to be polite when applying for citizenship; and as soon as you’re granted citizenship, you can be as annoying as you want.

    May the Lord be with you as He is with me.
